Before, during and after the performances

  • Where can I find details about the times of the performances?

    The relevant production page on our website has full details of the current starting times and duration of each performance. In the case of world premieres and new productions, the running time is usually only known just before the first performance. We therefore recommend that you take a look at our website, which is regularly updated.

  • Do the Wiener Festwochen | Free Republic of Vienna provide surtitles?

    The Wiener Festwochen | Free Republic of Vienna have many performances where a foreign language is spoken on stage. The form of translation best suited for our Viennese and international audiences is decided for each production. Surtitles are the most common choice, projected live either directly into, above or alongside the stage set.
    Generally speaking, the aim is to provide a translation for both German and English-speaking audiences. Bilingual translations may be dispensed with in exceptional cases, for technical production, aesthetic or other reasons. Full details of the language spoken on stage and the available translations can be found on the relevant production page of our website.

  • Is there a dress code?

    The Wiener Festwochen | Free Republic of Vienna do not have a dress code. We know you will always be dressed appropriately. We just want you to be comfortable!

  • Are programmes available and what do they cost?

    There is an evening programme for almost every production; it is handed out free of charge by our ushers at each venue (a small contribution towards costs is charged only in exceptional cases). These programmes are also available (with english translation) on the relevant production page on our website.

  • Am I allowed to take pictures or make audio and/or video recordings during performances?

    Photography, filming and audio and/or video recordings are not permitted during the performances (authorisation required). Please also make sure your mobile phone is switched off during performances.

  • Who do I contact if I have lost something at one of the venues?
